Late after last night’s game, Boston Red Sox shortstop Jose Iglesias was traded to the Chicago White Sox for Cy-Young winning starting pitcher, Jake Peavy. I’m sad to see Iglesias go. He’s the type of baseball player I love watching most – slick in the infield, scrappy on the bases, and dependable at the plate. 

Here are a few photos of him during his last game in a Red Sox uniform, as well as a few others from the night. It was a good win for the Sox in the first of a three game series against the Seattle Mariners.

One day, there are pictures everywhere you look. The next, you can’t get a picture anywhere. That’s how baseball is, and last night’s game was slow – really slow. Aside from the play at the plate photo above, nothing really happened. I think all of Boston’s energy was focused on the Bruins, who were playing just down the road at the Garden playing in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals. 

Although the Sox lost and there weren’t many pictures, it was still neat to be working at a sold out baseball game while the same city’s hockey team was playing at the same time across town. Only in Boston. 

That’s it for baseball for me for awhile, as I’m traveling abroad for some exciting work. More to come soon!

I’m just now finding the time to get caught up on photos from the weekend. A rainy day on Friday made for a nice night off but a busy double header on Saturday. 

The Red Sox and Angels split the two games, but because these two teams are so heavy offensively, each game lasted well over four hours. That’s a lot of baseball for one day.

I shot the first game from third base, and the second game from both third and first base.
